4 months ago it seemed doable. 4 months ago it seemed like it was something God was leading me to do.
Now, it’s 4 days away and I’ve gone through every kind of emotion you can think of — paranoid, excited, scared, doubtful, nervous, ready to back out. What was I thinking? Was I even thinking? Did I hear God right?
On Saturday, May 8th, the men of our church are going to be serving the ladies a dinner. They were looking for some ladies in our church to speak. I … gulp … volunteered.
I’ve had a message on my heart to share for a few years. I didn’t know how God was going to lead me to share it or when He was going to lead me to share it — and right now I’m thinking I would’ve been happy if He’d waited a few more years before He prompted me to do this.
4 months ago I had visions of quiet Bible study time every day … journaling … praying … spending just every waking moment with God and soaking up His words to share for Saturday. Now, 4 days away I’m feeling like an utter failure for not having done much of any of that.
I would like to ask you to pray for me. Pray for me to prepare my message as best as I can between now and then … and pray for God to take over when I get there. Pray for the ladies who are there, especially if there’s one who hasn’t accepted Jesus as their Savior yet. Because that’s what all this is for — reaching that one lady.
If you’re local to me, you are more than welcome to come to the dinner. Let me know you’re coming so I can add to our list. There’s no cost. Childcare’s provided. Free food and you get to come listen to me ramble. Oh, and Duck’s group is providing the music so you get to listen to him sing too! Can’t beat that 🙂
